Dividend Income Report: October 2018

Wow! October was quite the wild ride, wasn’t it? The bear market came out of hibernation and certainly mauled a lot of investors’ portfolios. While many dividend investors are feeling pain looking at their portfolios’ value drop, I’m sure they’re also happy about the good buying opportunities now appearing. That’s the paradox of being a …

Dividend Income Report: August 2018

Well, it’s that time again, and another month is now forever history. Here in the Pacific Northwest, the weather is becoming decidedly less summery and is taking on a more autumn-like character. We didn’t do much summer travel, but last week we spent three nights in a state park cabin here in Washington. Overall, it …
